Re: Cannot find host

"sftp:// sitesuser.rootsweb.com" is not a host name, that URL. Hostname is "sitesuser.rootsweb.com"

Unable to connect to Host

Thanks for the tip.
Unfortunately it did not work.
Comes up with -:
Server unexpectedly closed network connection.

This has me stumped.

Re: Unable to connect to Host

Did it ever work before? Where did you get that connection information from? Can you login with any other SSH/SFTP client? Did you talk to server administrator/provider?
